    Hey Henrique. Your English is very good. Much better than my Portuguese.

    Do you see this delay when playing it on the screen or only on the lights. How exactly are you playing it to the lights? Using XLights or xschedule?

    Have you run check sequence?

    To run check sequence see the tools menu.

    There is also an option there to package sequence. If you want you can do that as well and send it to me and I will take a look at it for you.

    Yes you can snake the pixels. Set the string count to 1 and the strands per string to 10. The. Set the starting location based on where on your prop the string starts.

    Is the preview okay?
    If yes, then it is most likely controller configuration.
    If no, go over the model config again and check that you set the parameters correctly.

    Hello Keithsw1111,


    How are you Today ?
    Long time we don't have contact, I was doing my test with my control and my elements and now I am needing again your help.

    I did some units of strings for I do a tree with 500 pixel ws2811.

    How my control only have a universe, I did 4 board with 1 universe each for use with this tree.

    I separated the board each one with your IP adress and now I put the effect for test, but the image is not normal.

    My doubt now is: How can I to do the separation of pixel in each universe for can I see the image perfect.

    I have to put the pixel in the universe 01 with 150 pixel adress 01 to 450 and start the other pixel in universe 02 and put more for do the sequence ?

    Or how can I to do this, can you help me ?

    Please help me
    Thank you again.
